Tipperary Bungalow was built around 1900 by the Charles Dickens family and for a time was the premier club of Yercaud. The heritage bungalow is located at the entrance of a working 70 acre working coffee farm. There are also Jackfruit trees, avocado, banana, wild turmeric and peppers which can be consumed in season. My family has owned this property since the 1970's and I am now glad to share this spot with Airbnb Guests. One bedroom is newly constructed and has a modern bathroom . The other bedroom is part of the older construction but has been renovated and painted. Both rooms have a large extensive patio with a wonderful view of the valley. The caretaker is usually available for guided treks ( 250/ person)through the magnificent property. The other 3 bedrooms don't have valley view and have 2 single beds each,All 5 bedrooms rooms have attached private bathrooms. The sixth bedroom is large and shares a common bathroom with the fifth bedroom.The seventh bedroom is a high ceiling room which does not have a attached toilet.This is a heritage bunglow preserved in old style as much as possible.The caretaker /host has the discretion to allot the rooms.
There are friendly frolicking timid monkeys downhill and you can wake up to birds chirping and fresh coffee from the farm!

Cell phone coverage is very spotty at the actual bungalow. The large living room has a TV and wifi router. The size of the living room requires you to be near it to have coverage. Wifi calling works well in the living room and under the iconic tree which is the front of the bunglow.
